: After 5 years of League, I am calling it quits at the end of the season.
Good. That's what I did months ago and, honestly, I'm glad that I did it. I'm glad that I quit League. Made me realize there are a lot of ACTUALLY FUN games unlike this crapfest right here: Started playing Starcraft 2, loved it; Warframe? Genius; Went back to playing Mercy on Overwatch and realized playing a support can be fun again. Seriously dude. If you are not enjoying the game, just quit. It will be better for you.

If respect is earned, you deserve none at this moment.

Being a hypocrite doesn't earn you respect you know. Learn what an ad hominem is.

He does if it's *just* an attack speed slow. He is only immune to attack speed slows if they are paired with movement speed slows, I believe.

: why am i personally stuck in bronze pls help
While others might come in here providing specific tips about what you can do better, I feel like mentality is the most important part. -Always play with an open mind during games in relation to what you are not doing well, and strive to know why you are doing mistakes. Your aim should never be to "climb rank". You should be aiming to get better, the rest just follows along nicely. -Do not take ranked too seriously, that will lead to tilting and ladder anxiety. And one last thing, which is related to the other two, -Many games in bronze can be decided on who gets the fewer feeders on their team, so sometimes it's possible to feel like you can't do anything to win. Do not let this stop you from improving and for god's sake don't lose a game with the excuse "my team was shit", that's bad for numerous reasons. Like, seriously, if you see you are starting to tilt, stop playing. Take a shower, take a walk around the block, do some exercise. It's important to not become too emotionally invested in this "game", made to have fun. That's it. I didn't need more than that to get out of bronze, you shouldn't too.

: Trolls are picking on users using toxic names to successfully report other players!
You can contest your punishment if you think it's unjustified by contacting player support. Also.... I don't know if this is a special case or not but naming and shaming is *not* allowed on these forums so you might get smited by the mods if you're not careful.
: Riot, did you fire the people doing the soundtracks for the past few years?
Just because you can't appreciate good music doesn't mean it's bad. My advice would be to learn how to compose and then come back after years of hard work to then realize even then you still have a lot to learn. I'm sorry but, as a musician myself, these types of posts irritate me way too much. Aurelion Sol's theme is really (like really) well made, and I would go on to explaining why it is but I don't think you would listen to any of it.

And here I was, just after reading a thread with constructive advice on what champions to pick to beat Darius. I knew something was missing.
Kantan (NA)
: Can't wait to not be able to play any champions in my pool after 10-bans.
If all of your champion pool is getting perma banned, then i think you should rethink the champions you are picking.
: I don't understand this mentality. There are a ton of RNG factors in league and specifically because Tryndamere has one for his laning phase, it make's his design broken? There is always counterplay, there are always things you could have done better. If you let Tryndamere auto you to death, then that's a player problem, not a champion problem.
> If you let Tryndamere auto you to death, If you let Tryndamere get 2 straight crits on you, it's your fault because you didn't pray hard enough to RNGesus. Same thing applies to playing as Tryndamere. Last time I checked, I shouldn't lose my laning phase because I didn't crit my opponent a single time in 4 auto-attacks. This is flawed design and the whole community knows about it, you just seem to be denying it for some forsaken reason. I should also note that by your thinking philosophy, no champion is broken or badly designed, they are simply different.
: Give me a reason his Design is broken without talking about his ult.
His whole laning phase is based on RNG. There, didn't talk about his ult.
: ?
Rip. OP just got smited because he didn't buy enough RP. On a serious note though, maybe that has to do with not updating? I would try repairing the launcher if I were you (if that is even still a thing).
: Was i toxic?
Honestly, when I'm playing I try to not ask any questions unless I really want an answer. Take what you said as an example: "Why are you coming mid?" Because you are not really looking for an answer and are just asking a rhetoric question, this can be seen as passive aggressive from the other person's point of view. Let me assure you your teammate probably knew he made a mistake the moment he died in your lane, and you asking questions probably didn't improve his mood. Honestly, I don't want to sound like an expert here because I'm really not. I'm just trying to use my common sense. Oh, and no, I don't think you were toxic, just a liiiiiitle passive aggressive, which can sometimes tilt people.

Biabri (EUW)
: I am alarmingly good at Dark Star despite being in B5...
Erm.... Good for you? ...Congratulations? I guess? It's not like it has any connection to the main game anyway. Most of the times what you need to climb in ELO is good decision making, this new gamemode requires zero for you to succeed.
: This is where I feel we are crossing the line from gameplay experience to gameplay philosophy. I never read a Riven tooltip in my life. I know what her abilities did from when they hit me. Most people could tell "Circly explosion = stun, third leap landing = knockup." As for animation canceling it exists on all champions to some level, some more than others. It has just been made a feature on Riven. Learning parts of a game like animation canceling is part of learning the game. Just like learning in a fighting game which combos go off in what number of frames to overwrite enemy combos. If you don't want to learn the game to that depth(which isn't even needed in Riven's case, some basic counter knowledge is usually enough) you won't climb, just as if you don't want to learn how stutter stepping works or ability buffering. They are mechanics of the game. It is your choice and your ELO to learn them. Me I learn about the game for fun, I don't care for climbing. But other than AA weaving everything Riven did was pretty apparent from fighting her. AA weaving could use clarity.
> I never read a Riven tooltip in my life. I know what her abilities did from when they hit me. Most people could tell "Circly explosion = stun, third leap landing = knockup." Sure, I can see that. I have also never read a Riven tooltip in my life, but I only learned that she hasn't got 12 different abilities the moment I tried to play her, and in my honest opinion that isn't right. "12 abilities?" Yes, you have to admit an Ult-Q combo looks very different from a "third leap landing". I'm pretty sure this wasn't even what OP was originally saying anyway, but in my opinion, it is way too hard to know what her abilities do from the point of view of a player that is new to the concept of animation canceling.
Glory97 (EUW)
: If search at youtube for animation canceling guides for riven you can find a lot of stuff. And if you take a look at the different riven combos, i think its not that hard to get a grasp of what she can do. I don't think if riot explains all that to you it would be easier to understand, than what you can learn about riven on youtube. And i don't really think that clarity will help that much. Look at yasuo. Everyone knows that he can dash through minions a million times and that he has a windwall that can block everything, and still he is even more hated than riven.
If I had to watch a guide for each champion just to know that one of his abilities stuns or slows, I would've quit this game ages ago. I think what he is saying is, contrary to a case like (idk) Taric, where you immediately know what his E does after getting hit by it, a well learned and played Riven is just an absolute clusterfuck of abilities from the point of view of the player receiving the pain. You don't know if her W stuns, if it's a combination of abilities, or even HOW MANY ABILITIES she has, since her Q can be used multiple times. You shouldn't be forced to watch a 10-minute guide to know what she does. Reading the tooltips should be enough, but in this case, the tooltips don't mention one of the biggest parts of her kit: animation canceling.

: so you want to nerf a balanced champion out of viability cus half of the player base enjoys playing him? lol
> so you want to nerf a balanced champion out of viability cus half of the player base enjoys playing him? Come on now. You know it's not that simple. If half of the whole player base is picking the same single champion in every match then it's not just because he is "fun".

: listen guys Lucian is just fun to play
I mean, technically, surely a champion can be fun and balanced at the same time... right? I have no idea if he is overpowered or not, but we should all be aiming to make this game more fun for EVERYONE, the person playing, and his/her opponent.
Doodlzzz (NA)
: If u don't care about winning, don't play ranked
What IF I don't care if I win or lose? This game is supposed to be played for fun and, no matter how you put it, I feel like facing the game in a heavyhearted manner and enforcing this ideal of "I NEED to win" just makes the community more toxic and honestly it doesn't do any good because that's just asking to get frustrated. No, I'm not in favor of intentional feeding or any kind of trolling, but I feel like I should have the right to play this game without some random guy telling me to "fuck off" or "die in a fire" because I didn't join the teamfight at the right time. Just my 2 cents on the matter of course. This is, after all, just a game and you should treat it like one, and have fun. There's already way too much stress on your real life, why add to it?
: ***
Please try to present actual valid points and arguments instead of just attacking the person. Even though he himself is not being very well mannered, his original point was pretty interesting to me and to be honest, the topic itself deserves a little more discussion IMO But hey who am I to question the way people think in this community...
: Someone won't see the 10 bans coming and that he's never going to set foot on the Rift ever again
: The term 'OK' originated from 'zero (o/0) killed (k)
: What if, instead of gaining double crit chance, Yasuo's passive was changed to let him start with 20% crit chance, scaling crit chance from like 5% to 30% levels 1-18, or giving him 10% crit chance for every point invested in his ultimate? I believe that would make him much more balanced overall, and take away some of his super massive power spike after two items.
Because having entire laning phases decided purely by a lucky crit chain is fun and interactive amirite? *cough* *cough* *Tryndamere* *cough*
: honestly i hate {{champion:122}} 1000000000000x more than i hate yasuo. like at least with yas their are a BUNCH of different counter picks for him. {{champion:86}} {{champion:58}} {{champion:62}} {{champion:80}} {{champion:127}} {{champion:54}} {{champion:24}} {{champion:78}} Play yasuo vs a good renekton, i'll wait for the HIV to develop in you.
Because Darius doesn't have "a BUNCH of different" different counters?
: i just realized galio's passive icon is the arthur fist meme http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/leagueoflegends/images/c/ce/Colossal_Smash.png/revision/latest?cb=20170317024842 http://i0.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/021/018/Ine1AkaF_400x400.jpg
...Or it's just his fist?
: its not meant to be a balance, its meant to make the hitbox match the animation
Yes, and OP was arguing it should stay that way because otherwise Darius would be overpowered. Again, that's not how you balance a champion.

Having a passive attitude towards things isn't going to help you anywhere.
